An attempt was made to fuse Art and Music recently at the Gallery of Modern Art.
Guitars that were for all intensive purposes unplayable, yet still a beautiful thing to look at.
The musician in my family thought it was all a bit pretentious.
What value does it have?
Does it question our long held belief systems? Is that why some find it offensive, even stupid or banal?
Is it pushing the boundaries of art?
What happens to these pieces once they have finished being exhibited? Do they find a valued spot in someone's home, or are they left in a warehouse to gather dust?
Can the environmental cost be wayed up against the aesthetic benefit, or the emotional one?
Is this more than just "entertainment"
All these things might be something to ponder about?
